Kid Read: The Best Halloween Ever

I wouldn't say this was that great of a book but my daughter wanted me to read it to her. It is a basically a similar story to "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" by Barbara Robinson with the same wild Herdmans kids. Although I love this classic story, I found myself bored with this alternative (different holiday) version of the story. I found myself trying to summarize and skip sections where possible. I believe it was partly because the main characters of the book besides the Herdman's were not developed well. Also, since I knew how the classic story turned out I already knew how this story would turn out. Haha, it wasn't my favorite of books I've read to them by a long shot and may have been one of the worst to be honest. But, heck, we got through it and my seven year old daughter seemed to enjoy it!
